The first step to having any real ROM-type fun is getting a custom recovery for your device. Well, the Oppo Find 7a is getting TWRP support even before it's widely available (only for sale in China right now).

Oppo N1 CyanogenMod 11 Nightlies Toting Android 4.4 Are Now Up For Download [Update: Find 5, Too]

Update: The Oppo N1 isn't alone. CyanogenMod 11 nightlies are available for the Find 5 as well.

OppoFind5

You can get your hands on an Oppo N1 with CyanogenMod pre-installed. Really, it's the first phone to have this as an option, and there's a good chance that's the only reason you even know which phone I'm referring to. Yet as cool as that is, for Android tinkerers, there's just one problem  - it's too outdated. KitKat's been hitting devices for months now, but the phone came with Android 4.3, and the type of people likely to buy this handset aren't exactly the most patient bunch.

Oppo N1 With CyanogenMod Review: You Have To Start Somewhere

The Oppo N1 isn't a phone you'd expect to see sold in markets like the United States. It's eccentric and, frankly, kind of weird. A rear touchpad panel? A swiveling camera? A 5.9" display? Official CyanogenMod support from the factory? It has "niche" written all over it (not literally, but that would be kind of funny, I suppose). As such, the N1's appeal in western markets is likely to be limited to the enthusiast audience, an audience Android Police has long entertained.

The Oppo N1 is, indeed, the first smartphone ever to be sold with CyanogenMod pre-installed as an option. The CyanogenMod edition of the N1 went on sale Christmas Eve, and while it looks no different from its skinned counterpart, marks a huge milestone in the custom ROM saga, a veritable "first" in the industry.

Yes, CyanogenMod fans, there is a Santa Claus. Cyanogen Inc. announced early on Christmas Eve morning that the long-awaited Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition is now available on Oppo's web store. It costs the same $599 as the standard N1, but comes pre-loaded with CyanogenMod 10.2 (Android 4.3). You'll also get spiffy custom packaging, a CyanogenMod phone case (plus a standard case), the O-click remote shutter, and a few stickers to show your devotion.

CyanogenMod YouTube Channel Comes Alive With Its First Video – A Demo Of The Oppo N1 CyanogenMod Edition

It's been a crazy few months for the team at Cyanogen Inc..

Now there's a YouTube channel where you can follow the exploits of the CM crew, and it all starts with a demo of the Oppo N1 running the official CyanogenMod ROM.

The Oppo N1 Is Officially The First Google CTS-Certified CyanogenMod Phone, Can Run Google Apps Suite Legitimately

It's officially official: the Oppo N1 is the first Google-approved CyanogenMod phone. After passing through Google's CTS (compatibility test suite), CDD (compatibility definition document), and CTS Verifier, the phone can legitimately run Google's suite of apps and have access to the Google Play Store. It is an undeniably big milestone for Cyanogen Inc., who hope to release a true "CyanogenMod" phone at some point, with the "highest quality hardware available" through a partnership with an as-yet unannounced firm.

The N1 is a beast of a phone, thanks in no small part to its pocket-straining 5.9-inch 1080p screen. Unique features include a 13-megapixel camera on a rotating hinge, so it functions as both the front and rear camera, and a touch-sensitive back panel that's integrated with Oppo's Color software based on Android 4.2.
